Data collected by the Centre for Diseases and Control Prevention in USA show that the Johnson and Johnson covid19 vaccine is effective but may cause mild to severe side effects. Here are seven side effects experienced some people:
- Blood clots due to low platelets
- Severe headaches and blurred vision
- Chest pain and shortness of breath
- Leg swelling
- Persistent abdominal pain
- Easy bruising
However, there is limited data about these in South Africa and further evidence is required as vaccine responses may vary according to ethnicity and geographical location. Despite the side effects, the CDC advised individuals to seek medical attention when experiencing the reported side effects.
